Petrobras starts sale of fertilizer assets

SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Petróleo Brasileiro SA launched on Monday the sale of two fertilizer units, as Brazil’s state-controlled oil company seeks to reduce capital spending and focus on core business segments.

    In a Monday securities filing, Petrobras (PETR4.SA) said the sales are part of a move to exit fertilizers. The units that have been put on the block include Araucária Nitrogenados SA and Unidade de Fertilizantes-III, or UFN-III, which is 80 percent completed at the moment.
